OK so I had to wade deep into this one because well, it’s what I do.  🙂 A few days ago, blogs and Twitter blew up because Paul Thurrott, respected Windows analyst/blogger had a frustrated rant on his blog. The post which had the awesome title “What the heck is happening to Windows?” had Paul reaching the heights of...

As we slide into 2014, this is a good time to reflect on the past year and talk about goals and targets for the next 365 days. Regarding the site 2013 was a time of transition for the site. I run multiple businesses and (unfortunately) had to take my eyes off of Windows for a good part of this year. One of my other...

The most strategic tech error of the 21st Century surely has to be the way that Google has mishandled their Operating System – Chrome OS. OK maybe that’s hyperbole but based on the fact that Microsoft stumbled loudly and publicly with Windows 8, it’s hard to disagree that this is the perfect time for an OS competitor to...

At this point, everyone in technology has heard about the new line of Microsoft Surface Tablets scheduled for release in the next few months. Called the Surface Pro 2 and The Surface 2, the specs on these devices have seemed pretty impressive and the launch event today went off pretty smoothly. In addition to the...

A few months ago, the Obama administration did something that quite frankly was pretty shameful. They let word leak that they were considering Susan Rice for the Secretary of State position and then they let her dangle in the wind for weeks as opponents savaged her in the press. Now this isn’t a political blog and...

Paul Thurrott wrote a pretty impressive piece on his Supersite giving a very compelling theory about why Windows 8 has sold poorly over the previous holiday season. In a beautifully written piece called “Explaining Windows 8 PC Sales Over the Holidays” he lays out this central theory – because of the Netbook and...

I have been one of the harsher critics of Windows 8 from the very beginning. I was irritated at the new Windows 8 logo, the fact that the start menu was taken away and angry that Microsoft chose to bundle both the Metro (yes I call it Metro – still) interface and the traditional desktop together in the same OS. My...

So every once in a while, there will be a reader on the blog who leaves a comment that I have to address and share. Today’s lucky victim commenter is Chris. Chris left a comment on my post contrasting the size and shape of Windows Phone devices and the new iPhone 5. Here’s what he or she had to say: I have been coming...

It’s been a while since I’ve actually written about Windows 8 and my opinions so I wanted to opine a little about where I see this thing going. This will be a little free form as I feel that the truth comes more naturally that way so bear with me a little. First of all, I have to admit, the more time I spend with Metro,...

Yes, yes I have seen the unequivocal denials and still don’t believe them. The fact of the matter is, the same issues with OEM’s that are true with tablets are also true in the phone space. Nokia (the company) is looking less and less attractive. Nokia phones while critically acclaimed have gone nowhere. No Phone OEM...
